Publisher's Summary

If you're a highly sensitive person (HSP), you're in good company. HSPs make up some 20 percent of the population, individuals like you who both enjoy and wrestle with a finely tuned nervous system. You often sense things that others ignore such as strong smells, bright lights, and the crush of crowds. Even the presence of strangers in your immediate vicinity can cause you considerable distraction. You already know that this condition can be a gift, but until you learn to master your sensitive nervous system, you might be operating in a constant state of overstimulation.

As an HSP, the most important thing you can learn is how to manage your increased sensitivity to both physical and emotional stimulation. This accessible, practical guide contains strategies to help you master this critical skill. Build your coping skills by exploring the books engaging exercises. Then, keep the book by your side, a constant companion as you make your way through your vibrant and highly stimulating world.

  • Find out what it means to be a highly sensitive person
  • Take the self-examination quiz and find out whether you are highly sensitive
  • Learn coping techniques indispensable to HSP's
  • Discover how to manage distractions like noise and time pressure at home and at work
  • Reduce sensory-provoked tension with meditation and deep relaxation techniques
  • Navigate the challenges of interacting with others in social and intimate relationships

    "Packed with practical advice"

    I listened to this after Dr. Elaine Aron's The Highly Sensitive Person. It gave many strategies for dealing with the problems of being an HSP in the modern world. I will return to this book many times in the future for advice.

    "It has some helpful ideas"

    To start off I'll say that the book is helpful. It has a lot of suggestions for ways the HSP can make changes in their life. Each HSP has different sensitivities so not all of the tips will be helpful for everyone, but you should find at least a few that will help you (if you are an HSP reading it).
    My quibbles with the book begin with some of the chapters and content. Dr. Zeff is a proponent of Ayurveda and many other practices that are dubious in their effectiveness and legitimacy as any sort of healing art. The chapters of nutrition and health, and spiritual wellness I gained nothing from whatsoever and could have gone without listening to them at all.
    On a more personal level I found his constant alliterations and cheesy jokes annoying at best.
    The narrator did a fine job with the content he performed.

    "Very disappointed in content."
    Would you try another book from Ted Zeff and/or Paul Aulridge?

    probably not


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Paul Aulridge?

    not sure but found his voice to be very stilted and not believable.

    "could have been condensed "

    I genuinely loved "The highly sensitive person". This book references it a lot, but repeats itself frequently. The suggested coping strategies could have been condensed into 5 chapters easily. While some of the stories added a bit of gravity, I found them unnecessary. Still well worth a listen if you are an HSP.
